Directions: Grab paper, pencil, and a stratightedge. You may also want a sheet of graph paper. Use your graphing calculator only for checking your results. Beware!! The cartoon assistants may, or may not, be helpful!
1. 
Solve and check this system algebraically:
y = x^{2}  x  6
y = x  3





2. 
Solve and check this system algebraically:
2x + y = 2
y = (x  1)^{2} + 1





3. 
Solve and check this system by graphing:
y = x + 3
y = x^{2}  2x  1
